The JET LAMP tour starts off at the undisputed king of computer gamer conventions, PAX Prime in Seattle, Washington from September 3rd-5th. After the excellent premiere and experience of GET LAMP at PAX East in March, I knew I wanted to have some presence at the west coast, original PAX. Unfortunately, I missed the deadline for submitting panels (I was too busy finishing the film) and so there’s no within-the-convention-center panel/screening at the event. But fear not! Besides walking around with copies and my lamp, I’ll be hanging out at the Interactive Fiction Suite. Just like the PAX East version, this will be a suite in a nearby hotel (in this case, the Sheraton, where some PAX events are happening as well). The planned screening is at 8pm on Saturday, a cozy showing with Q&A.
In Portland, Oregon, I’ll be at the incredible Backspace Cafe on September 9th, as a special feature of the Portland Commodore User’s Group. They really went all out finding me a place – it’s beautiful. And even more fun, the venue is right next to the world-famous Ground Kontrol classic arcade. The venue holds a couple hundred people, so don’t hesitate to get the word out.
I’ll be bringing copies of GET LAMP to both events (and all the rest of the events, too).
The JET LAMP page will be filling up rather quickly in the next week or so. Watch for changes or announcements here.
Let’s get this tour started!
